Even though it is raining, Shelly and I met after work at the boat tonight. I wanted to run the engine before we fly to Boston for Nicole’s 50th birthday party on Saturday.
Rain doesn’t stop us from hanging out on Shellerina.
and a 17 point crib! What’s up with that!?
New grills arrived Thursday at S-Dock, so we decided that we should be the first customers to fire one up! Swordfish Kabobs!
Doubles as a butt leaning pad when standing! Very nice for long runs.
Anchored today on Great South Bay, Long Island NY, we remember lots of great skiing at Sunday River back on Maine! Here we use a cup to hold the hatch open.
We think this spring skiing pic was April or May 2012, last day of Sunday Rivers season.
Also new this year is our collection of SS straws. Doing our part to keep plastics out of the ocean! They come with SS cleaning brushes…
…and now power and lights too!
The smallest of things on a boat can bring the most joy … e.g. a new seat for the head installed today!
… meaning “pleasing to the senses.”
So, our new sound system this year is very enjoyable.
Tonight we installed a Richie factory-refurbished compass for a fraction of the price of a new one. Over the winter we read that this was working out well for other boat owners. So we did it!
With GPS chartplotters and Navionics APPs, do we ever actually use the compass? Not really. But from experience years ago, I am actually quite skilled at this art of “dead reckoning” navigation with chart and compass! So, I expect several days of fun doing things the old fashioned way this season.
First task? Create a deviation card!
A great night’s sleep!
